How to use environment default tokens in HTML Dashboards?

Path Finder

Hi Splunkers, I'm trying to use $env:user_realname$ in a HTML dashboard, I've searched a lot about It and realize that I could only get this information with a SplunkJs function but I only get this until now:

var tokens = mvc.Components.getInstance("default");       
           var current=Splunk.util.getConfigValue("USERNAME");        
           tokens.set("currentuser", current);

The code above only brings me my username and I want full name (or realname, as Splunk use to reference).

Thanks everyone!
